Day Trip- New York City 7/19/2012

Part 3, National Museum of the American Indian is a Smithsonian museum in New York City.  Located in the Alexander Hamilton United States Custom House at Bowling Green across from Battery Park; 4 or 5 train downtown.  They had several different exhibits including one about Africans slaves and freedmen who mixed with American Indians.  That exhibit mentioned Chappaquiddick (yes that Chappaquiddick) off Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts and Foxwoods Indian Casino in Connecticut.  It was interesting seeing East Indians in the museum checking out the culture of a people named after them by Europeans.
